Creating your own turkey from your hand is a great way to celebrate. You will need a few sheets of construction paper-different colors-tape, scissors, glue, a pen and a hand. After tracing and cutting out a hand on construction paper, cut out two turkey feet and a beak on yellow paper. Glue everything to the body and decorate the fingers. Our turkey-hand kid-tester, William, chose to draw his feathers on the turkey. You can also use feathers or colored paper.
